Waiting's the Hardest Part

That's a Tom Petty song, isn't it? "Waiting's the hardest part"?

I think he sings something like that. Being somewhat drained from the emotion of dealing with grandma's imminent death, the nightly drives to Sarasota, dealing with office budget cuts, additional scrutiny (it wouldn't be appropriate of me to elaborate on that, though I wish I could), and job security, I took a break tonight. It was a somewhat normal evening. Picked up my veggie box (I know - I need to post last week's box), ran to the gym, and prepared a somewhat healthy meal. Strange, I never tire of rice (with Mexican hot sauce), veggies, and shrimp. Yum! (Side note, I've lost 8 pounds since Christmas. Something's working and I know it wasn't the box of chocolate covered malt balls I consumed in two consecutive days during stress binges; but maybe it was the Starbucks Frappuccino and banana for dinner last night.)

I'll make the journey to Sarasota tomorrow after work. Just wish I could find something to pass the idle time. I wish I could write, blog, social network, edit, and upload photos. And I really wish Star Trek would become reality sooner than later, I want to teleport!

What's going through my mind right now? Wondering if Grandma's wishing someone would turn off the Big Band music which has been playing continuously for 72 hours.

PA RV Camping at its Finest: Gettysburg Battlefield Resort

Tourism Cares just sent me an email reminding me about the April 2009 project at Spangler Farm at the Gettysburg Battlefield. I enjoyed participating in the program last year and was really looking forward to attending this spring and maybe doing a little bit of Gettysburg camping along with ghost hunting (I’ve read the Gettysburg Battlefield is one of the most haunted in the U.S.).

Doesn’t look like I’ll be able to make it due to work commitments, however, Pennsylvania’s on my radar as a vacation destination and I’d like to introduce my new friends, the Gettysburg Battlefield Resort, offering premium Gettysburg camping for RVs, tents, and cabin rentals. The private PA RV camping resort has more than 215 sites with hook ups ranging from 20 to 50 amp electric along and water and some sites with sewer hook ups. Fees at this luxury resort start at $10 per night. I think it’s great for someone like me, they offer cozy cabins for those not into camping. Find the luxuries such as Olympic-size swimming pool, Internet access, cafĂ©, open year-round, and the best location to the battlefield.

Planning an RV camping Gettysburg vacation soon? This may encourage you to make plans sooner than later, PA RV camping resort is offering two nights/three days FREE (yeah, that’s right, FREE camping during this economic climate).

Close to Hershey, Pa., (the “Sweetest Place on Earth”), Lancaster’s Dutch Country, hiking parts of the Appalachian Trail, and the location where President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, the Soldier's National Monument, along with special events almost every week, and steps away from American history, this sounds like RV camping Gettysburg style at its best.

Sorry Tourism Cares, I can’t join you this year but I may be saying hello to Gettysburg camping sooner than later. Anyone else in with me? Or, we can big wheel it and do a little bit of RV camping Gettysburg style at Gettysburg Battlefield Resort.
